Installing Outdoor Landscape Lighting: Get Awesome Curb Appeal

2 Hours

We all want awesome curb appeal. At first I was worried this might take forever but it's easier than making pumpkin pie. If you can use a screw driver and handle a shovel this project will take only a few hours.
Plus, I'll walk you through it step-by-step. So you might have fantastic landscape lighting in less time.
With the holidays approaching and visitors making their way to our homes this could be your next DIY project.
For the complete video tutorial you can visit my site :D
Curb appeal is only 2 hours away: outdoor landscape lighting is awesome.
Choose the right power pack. It needs to have enough power to handle all your lights.
Measure distance of power pack mounting holes.
Drill holes into mortar using a Tapcon drill bit and hammer drill set to hammer setting.
Add Tapcon screws to mortar using a hammer drill and hex drive.
Dig a 6 inch trench.
Attach 12/2 wire to power pack terminals. Make sure insulation doesn't touch terminals. Strip 3/4 inch of insulation from wire using combination strippers then twist wire using lineman's pliers.
